Major donor fundraising training- bespoke for your team

A Summit training session for your team can be a great investment for your charity to succeed in major donor fundraising.

I provide training virtually and in person for either 2-3 hours or a full day. All sessions are interactive, workshop style with plenty of breaks.

All my training is completely bespoke – specific for the level of knowledge for those attending from your charity and to what you need.

Louise has helped provide a foundation understanding for our team who were all brand new to Philanthropic giving, and she’s given us focus within our major giving portfolio. The session she ran was engaging and she included everyone across a virtual and in person format, which was really appreciated and involved not just the theory but helpful tools to bring it to life.

We will have a meeting beforehand where I will understand where you are at with major donor fundraising and what you want the training to achieve. I’ll then provide the agreed aims of the training and a session plan to achieve this.

Your focus may be on:

  • Building confidence and momentum for phoning donors.
  • Approaching less engaged potential major donors – how to get those conversations.
  • Where to turn for “new donors“.
  • How the team can work together to build confidence and progress.
  • How to involve the charity in major donor fundraising beyond your team.
  • Agreeing the KPIs that will help monitor progress in your major donor programme, beyond the money.

Any session will be bespoke to your charity and the background and experience of your trustees, and the history of your major donor fundraising to date.

Louise’s training has been a great experience and has really helped to accelerate our Major Donor fundraising at Sue Ryder. Louise made the training very relatable to the experience and size of our charity. The team came away from the training feeling enthusiastic and excited to move forward with their Major Donor fundraising with brilliant tips and advice on how to do so. I would thoroughly recommend Louise’s Major Donor training.
